Stats, Glorious Stats!

If you click on the picture above, you can see a bigger version of it which you should be able to actually read (thanks for the techie help, Mishy). I've posted it not as some triumphant announcement of my own times and position, but by way of a slautation to one ade fajemisin. He was the last person to finish, and he did so more than four and three-quarter hours after he started.

After swimming around the dock for nearly an hour, he then cycled around London for more than two and a half. Then, despite all that, he ran the 10 K in about the same time as me. I don't know if he did it for a charity, or to prove a point, or just because it was a nice day and he had nothing else planned. Any which way, I admire him greatly - he's what this website is all about - doing exceptional things very badly.

[I am also slightly disappointed that I was beaten into 666th place by a man called Daniel Slowly - talk about adding insult to injury]

I was thinking if you'd taken a few seconds longer you might've had a finishtime of 3 hours 30 minutes and 30 seconds.. which would have matched your placing of 666th.

maybe next time you could not try *quite* as hard.

I am one very proud friend of yours.

Right practice helps a man to reach his/ her goal. Here I liked Bangin's ability. I like to read this type of post including fitness wear like sports bra and triathlon shorts. In this case its really an awesome post. Thanks
